TroopWebHost can keep track of two types of inventory:
- Library materials - merit badge books and other reference items
- Troop equipment - camping gear, cooking equipment, etc.
Each item must be given a unique name or ID. This identifier should be physically attached to that item.
Identifiers can be as simple as "Tent #1", "Tent #2", or "Camping MB #1", "Lifesaving MB #3".
Once you have each item identified, you can enter everything into your inventory database.
Items can then be checked out to troop members and checked back in when they are returned.
Troop members can view the Library Materials and Troop Equipment that they have checked out from the My Stuff menu.
They may check out additional items, but they cannot check them back in.
With this system in place the troop will always know where everything is.
